About PixiEditor

Want to create beautiful pixel art for your games? PixiEditor can help you! Our goal is to create a fully open-source, fast, and feature-rich pixel art creator.

Familiar interface

Have you ever used Photoshop or Gimp? Reinventing the wheel is unnecessary, we wanted users to get familiar with the tool quickly and with ease.


PixiEditor is fast, drawing feels smooth on any canvas size, we've developed original chunk-based system and adaptive rendering to minimize pixel processing time.

Active development

PixiEditor started in 2018 and it's been actively developed since. We continuously improve code quality to ensure the best experience and performance.
